// PERFORMANCE MACHINE //
This is the debut of the larger PM Mac 2 3.5” with upgrades to both materials and design.
Jonathan McNees started his Performance Machine Series with one thing in mind: to complete the entire production process within the USA. While this knife can be called a Mid-Tech, the amount of work Jonathan does himself blurs the line between custom and production.
The McNees PM Mac 2 3.5” TAD Edition is the perfect balance between a gentleman's pocket knife and full size folder. A true mid-size, the PM Mac 2 3.5” is easy in the pocket but robust enough for heavier tasks. Its lightweight dimensions and contoured frame make it all but disappear in the pocket. Custom oversized thumb studs, in conjunction with caged bearings, deploy the upswept clip point with authority. The S45VN steel is incredibly durable, as is its heavily stonewashed finish. The upward cant and trailing point on the blade present the edge while keeping the hand out of the way during cutting tasks. A titanium framelock keeps things secure while the contoured slabs prevent hotspots during heavier work. Upgraded steel, machine hollow ground blades with redesigned jimping are all new on this edition.
Our TAD Edition comes in either a dark stonewash, rich bronze or deep blue with our signature topo pattern laser applied to the frame and clip. Our triple fullers are milled into the presentation side of the handle, while our logo is nested on the blade, mirroring the Mcnees logo.

// THE EXPLORER
Bowen’s craftsmanship shines in his ability to create a razor thin separation between the two blade grinds. The high hollow grind of the cutting edge reduces resistance for easier cutting.The unique paracord wrap that runs along the perimeter of the handle creates a very useful negative space down the center. The thin footprint indexes your fingers positively to increase your overall control of the knife. In turn, heavier tasks become easier and there is less fatigue during longer working periods.This edition utilizes CTS XHP, which possesses corrosion resistance equivalent to Type 440C stainless, but attains a maximum hardness of 64 HRC. This makes the blade more forgiving in outdoor environments.The skeletonized handle comes pre-wrapped in 550 paracord, which can serve as a useful rope reserve or be reworked among the twelve lashing points to suit your specific needs.
